Almost Purim! KCC #39

The Almost Purim KCC
Kosher Cooking Carnival #39
Adar, 5769 אדר ,

From the beginning I've said that "the Kosher Cooking Carnival is not just a kosher recipe carnival." I hope that more halachik posts will be submitted to it. Keeping kosher is complicated, and you have to know what you're doing.

Please send in any suitable posts you write or see via blog carnival. And if you'd like to host an edition, please let me know shilohmuse at yahoo dot com

Pretty soon we'll be taking our leave of the original KCC logo, which I made up with real scissors and paste over three years ago.

Looking back, here's a list of all the previous KCC's:
1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, KCC Meta Carnival, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26, 27, 28, 29, 30, 31, 32, 33, 34, 35, 36, 37 and 38.

In modern Hebrew כשר kosher has two meanings. One relates the food and the other to physical fitness. I've been on the kosher
Start Fresh kosher weight loss diet, and I've even lost weight. To encourage myself even more, I started a new blog carnival, Blogging About Losing Weight. Send your posts here.

A number of people sent me the link the article abobut how the
Chariedi newspaper Hamodia published a traif recipe. They claimed typo and that instead of using a "baleboosteh" to write the column they use an advertising agency. And obviously the men running the paper think cooking's beneath them and don't proof the column.

Every day meals

Shtetl Fabulous gives some very good advice:
Cook What You Know!
Try Ilana-Davita's
Honey-Mustard Chicken. It sounds absolutely delicious! Her Vegetarian Biryani, also seems great and looks good, too.
The “Bima Ima” gives some good advice about
onions and freezing.

Amanda's Poppy Seed Noodles looks like a great idea.

Now that I'm dieting, I eat lots of
vegetables, which are really easy to make.

Mottel can "
cook" not only photograph.

Shabbat Food
Shorty sent in
A sweet Shabbos for two. And of course, you can make lots more of it!

Jewish Holiday Food
Here’s a
breath of sanity about Purim by Ricki’s Mom.

Material Maidel makes a mean
Turkish Salad.

Annette Berlin’s
Mock Chopped Liver seems easy to make. I don’t go for complicated cooking.

Try these
brownies like you've never seen before, from Pesky Settler.

Birthday Cake form Mrs. S. isn't chocolate; it's even better!
If you want
sweet compote sans the sugar, bake it! Yes, it's a no sugar-added, really without sugar, compote. And here’s another version, this time with strawberries. It was a hit when I served it to friends.

Anything Kosher!
Leora offers
Oatmeal Quinoa Bread Pics Definitely dangerous for my diet.

Is it ever too early to
get ready for Passover? And I'm not referring to cleaning?

There's nothing like Elisson to look at kashrut from a
very unique perspective
“G6” sent
"A Recipe For Anonymous...." and I agree totally with the message. Ps, it’s a salad, but read the post, too, even if you don’t eat salads.
A Simple Jew’s wife posts about her quest to eat
healthier foods.
Is it true that
there won't be kosher food in the new NY Mets Stadium?

Daled Amos posts about a kashrut controversy, Blowing The New Kashrut's Cover.

It’s important to publicize the blog carnivals, so that more and more people will visit the various blogs included. So please send the carnival link out and post about it on your blog, if you have one. Thanks!

Next month’s edition will be hosted by
Material Maidel of Kosher Cuisine fame. Please send in any suitable posts you write or see via blog carnival. And if you'd like to host an edition, please let me know shilohmuse at yahoo dot com

Chodesh Tov! Have a great and joyful month!
